Lowest possible clock in the CM settings is 122 Mhz. While undervolting doesn't work on the OV, there's still the linear relationship between frequency and power use, (122 mhz uses 1/4 the power of 480 mhz for CPU only). Keep in mind that a phone's power use comes from other components too, LCD, radio, sensors, speakers, haptic feedback motors. So 1/4 of lets say 40% of CPU power is a reduction of only 10% on the whole system by going to 122 Mhz minimum from 480 Mhz. Turning down brightness, sensors off, volume, haptic feedback can also help.
